Petite Dress Form

…e…I’ve been very curious as to the measurements of those mannequins inside J.Crew stores. They look so tiny, and the clothes always have inches of fabric pinned behind them. Are there any savvy J.Crew employees reading this who might know? I’ve been temped to whip out my measuring tape inside J.Crew, but I’m not thick skinned enough to brave the embarrassment of getting thrown out by a teenager in a sweater vest… Does anyone have a vintage or clas…

Petite Gap Tees – Fit Review Friday

…to really feel relaxed. I did like the high-lo design of the hem and lower crew neckline, but the sheerness is very uninviting, especially as the temps continue to drop.

Petite Haute Couture Fashion House Carven Gets a Modern Makeover

…At this point in my life, I certainly can’t afford a high-end designer wardrobe, but I would love the option to buy a few special pieces in petite proportions that would hopefully not need invasive alterations. A girl can dream… Is there a retail market for high-end designer petite sizes? Would you splurge on high-end designer items if they came in petites?

Review: J.Crew Petite Schoolboy Blazer in Wool Flannel

…my mind, and their current blazer offerings are quite boring. Here enters J.Crew. Just look at those details! I’m completely smitten with those buttons, and adore the inside ticket and lipstick pockets. Fully lined, reinforced buttons, and working sleeve buttons are other great details. There’s even a chest pocket for pocket squares (he he). The fabric is a thin and soft wool flannel, which is perfect for most seasons here in Southern California….

Petite Fit Guide: Improper Fit of a Juniors Top on a Petite Woman

…ass Plum department at Nordstrom, and until I discovered my favorite Paige jeans, all my denim was juniors department finds.

I tried on a size XS, and it was c…

Banana Republic Asymmetrical Tee in size XXS petite. The neckline is ill-proportioned on someone so short.

Review: The Elusive Burberry Petite

…the shoulders and back. Another view of the baggy shoulder and back. This petite coat is not very petite! In fact, I’ve found better fits with the regular size 2 Burberry coats. I thought maybe it was just because this coat is wool/cashmere, and not the traditional trench fabric. But then I stumbled across this petite Burberry coat in size 2P at Nordstrom and tried it on. I found the fit was only slightly better than the wool/cashmere coat! It wo…
